Honeycomb is a natural product made by honey bees to store honey and pollen or house their larvae.
It consists of a series of hexagonal cells constructed from beeswax which generally contain raw honey.
Raw honey differs from commercial honey because it’s not pasteurized or filtered.
Honeycomb may also contain some bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly — additional bee products with potential health benefits of their own. However, these are likely to be found only in small amounts
You can eat the whole honeycomb, including the honey and waxy cells surrounding it.
The raw honey has a more textured consistency than filtered honey. In addition, the waxy cells can be chewed as a gum.
